However, families choose to give back during the season of giving, a contribution to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation addresses a communal need – in this case, putting a smile on the faces of local children who would otherwise go without a present on Christmas morning. «I’ve visited homes where people have lost everything from floods or fires and then the marines show up with bags of toys – it changes the whole dynamic of the family’s life,» said Henry Butts, Toys for Tots Coordinator in Volusia County, FL. «We give them hope and let them know they mean something to somebody.»

To further its commitment to children in-need, new this year, Toys»R»Us will donate $1 to Toys for Tots for every customer that takes advantage of the company’s all-new Price Match Promise (up to $1 million) now through Sunday, December 24. With the Toys»R»Us Price Match Promise, there is no need for shoppers to visit multiple retailers to get the best deal. If a customer finds an item advertised at a lower price somewhere else, we’ll match it. For more information about this program, visit Toysrus.com/PriceMatch.

As the largest retail partner in the history of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, Toys»R»Us has raised more than $53 million and collected approximately 4.5 million toys since the partnership began in 2004.
